NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Over the last year or so, I have traveled somewhat extensively. While I'm not one of these people who spends a majority of the year on the road, by the end of 2013 I will have amassed more than 50 hotel nights (mostly at the same chain) and roughly 20 to 25 roundtrip flights.The travels reaffirm several obvious points: Try to stay at the same hotel, as to become a regular; buy a solid pair of noise-canceling headphones (I have Bose ear buds); don't take red eye or early morning flights (they can make you less productive); and, as much as you prefer a window seat, never sit anywhere but on the aisle (I like to pee freely and stretch often).
